Even though its stripped you could most likely use a stud and nut. I have put 35 lb on nut with a stripped 3/8 stud with no problem.

Try a tap to dress the thread. You may have to heli coil it.

If this is a SBC be careful using a tap. The chips could fall down into the valley of the engine. The two center bolt holes go straight into the lifter valley. I would pull the intake and dress the threads like 406 bug said just making sure to keep all debris and chips from entering engine. Good Luck. Another tip if you have an aluminum intake is go ahead and heli coil your carburetor mount threads with the intake off the engine. Save yourself the headache of having to do it later. Good Luck.
